Mystery Man!


Someone recently (alright, it July, so not that recent) sent me the photo above of a 1970s-era adult film star and asked if I knew what his name was and if he had ever done gay erotica.  The email was actually a little more enthusiastic and proclaimed "I want to kiss that moustache and run my fingers through his hair and I haven't even ever seen his cock!--what's his name?  I already just dream that his cock is hairy and I love love love the hair growing on his neck back!"  This sounded like a great VGMH game to guess the smut stud! Hint: He worked in the era of Marc Stevens, Eric Edwards, John Clemens, and Sonny Landham.  Do you know who he is?  More clues tomorrow.

Vacation Fantsex (Part two)


Just fantasizing about all the people that this rubber dong has sex-mastered is probably enough to send anyone to the moon and stars while sucking on both heads, but nothing can quite compare to feeling it as it inches its way...

Vacation Fantasy

 
Maybe they told him 'make yourself at home' while he was taking care of their place for two weeks at the end of summer?  Some interesting things can sure be found in a pool house, and it looks like Doug found something that he's very interested in.  If only a double-headed dildo could tell us of the places that it has already been, but it looks like it's about to have a fun new adventure here at the poolside with Dougy.  Hey, it looks about the same size as his own cock, which is getting very aroused.  Three cocks (inlcuding his own), one mouth and a tight ass.  Time to have fun with this bad-boy dildo! 
Please stay tuned for part two of this summertime fanatsex

Behind the Scenes (end of series)

What could be better than a fun screw while standing up inside an old cast iron bathtub?  How about it happening right outside of a cool cedar shake cottage, and being surrounded by flowers and plants and birds chirping?   And then let's add a camera man standing on a ladder while another guys holds the ladder steady while watching you two guys are going at it?  Welcome to the world of making adult movies.  It's a place where that elevator might actually be nothing more than a plywood set. Ken Probst's book Pornegrafik (Pornographic) offers glimpses into what happens just-outside of the camera's viewpoint.

More Behind the Scenes

Ken Probst's book Pornegrafik (Pornographic) helps to remind us viewers that to the people making smut, it's just another day of doing their job.  Several people wanted to know where they could get a copy of this book.  Here is a link to the publisher's page but it looks like the book is on back order as best as VGMH can tell.

Sadly, San Fernando Valley studios cranking out Hollywood-quality smut with storylines (or even scripts for that matter), building plywood sets, and having carefully staged scenes are becoming more rare all of the time.  As the quantity of cheaply produced adult sex material available on the Internet expands all the time, the traditional industry is declining and fewer and fewer pornographic films are being produced to much of any artistic standards.  Next time you watch an adult scene, pay attention to how many film edits there are which change the view from wide to close-up, or from several viewpoint angles.  Does the activity move between multiple locations (such as starting in a living room, moving to a bedroom and ending up in the shower)?  Is any sexual anticipation created by teasing the audience to build excitement, or does the smut go directly to sex scenes?
Please stay tuned for part three.

From Behind


Back in 1999, a 106-page treasure for smut aficionados was published by Twin Palms Publishers.    The photos in this book are from the 1990s but the process of making a porno have not changed much in terms of the men behind the scenes required for any decent production.  If you ever get the chance to find a copy you'll be in for a special "behind the scenes" treat of how professional porn is often made.   
Making a smut movie basics:  First, there's the location or set.  Then there's the crew which includes the camera man, the lighting man, the director, and maybe one or two assistants.   Here at VGMH we've already documented and recalled stories of actors who have had their ball sacks burned by extremely hot lights when the action demands close-ups.  One vintage actor recalled someone on the set taking orders and bringing back a paper sack filled with greasy french fries and cheeseburgers, and the smell of raw onions on the man he was blowing as he kept belching.   And in eras before erection pills to guarantee a boner on demand, we've noted how models relied on a bottle of baby oil or a penis pump to get ready for their scene.
As the book Pornographic lets us know, photographer Ken Probst had been hired to photograph porn film actors for publicity pictures.  He began to photograph behind the scenes, and  in the process "[...] revealing the absurdities, pathos, and business of the pornographic film industry. These photographs, whether they portray an elaborate sexual situation or actors waiting between takes, are remarkable documents that observe the banality of manufacturing desire."

Without a doubt, some VGMH followers will be able to recognize some of the films and stars in the photos.  It looks like director John Rutherford working with Trent Reed on Falcon Studio's Billy’s Tale from 1994. And that looks like Jake Andrew and Chance Caldwell in The Abduction 2: The Conflict.  It also looks like there's Tom Katt in The Abduction 3 : The Redemption from 1993. 

Please stay tuned for part two

George Payne circa 1976

George Payne plays a handsome construction worker named Charlie Dobbs in 1976's Kiss Today Goodbye who finds sexual opportunities everywhere that he goes, but in the process he cheats on his boyfriend.  Dobbs (Payne) meets a straight-identified businessman (Seager) and they form a bromance, thanks to how desperately unhappy each of them are with their respective mates back home. The storyline involves male sexual desires and a growing emotional dependence that each dude builds for the other's acceptance and understanding.  This was an era when porn movies were really trying to be films with connected plots, drama, dialog, and this one even included some special effects camera work!  Actually, reviews were mixed about this flick, but who cannot grin at a gay sex movie where one of the men in the credits is named Ben Dover?  
 
The scene of Payne and Seager lying on the floor next to a fireplace, as Seager sucks on Payne's cock, still remains sexy decades afterwards.  Bearded Payne is master of his cock as he guides its head into Seager's eager mouth. Then a horny Seager kneels with his back facing George, offering Payne to mount him. Payne positions himself behind his partner as his cock (hands-free) instinctively enters (this is pre-condom era sex) Seager's ass.  A methodical fucking session begins, much to the painful delight of Seager, until George releases himself.  It's worthy to note that this was before home videos and the action happening in the film was played on a large theatre screen for an audience sharing the erotic experience together.  The film had its world premiere in New York City on Broadway at a time when the area around 49th street was filled with adult shops and theatres.  Writer H.M. Mostersen once recalled going to the district after working hours and sitting next to Wall Street traders in suits, city utility workers in overalls, middle aged married men and street hustlers. 

This film starred George Payne, Lew Seager, David Savage, Michael Gaunt, Mark Hamilton , Kurt Mann, Firth Demule, Ben Dover, and R. Cansino.

Cameron

Cameron was a Texas native and proved that the old saying 'everything is big in Texas' is sometimes true, when he entered the gay porn industry around 1999 at the age of 22. Still boyishly young and hunky like a football player earlier in his career, Cameron only looked better as he aged. Words used to describe his performances on film include 'virile' and 'seductive'. The actor (real name Shane Eugene Davis) left the business in 2006. Sadly, it's reported that he passed away June 12th at the age of 36.


Among his more famous adult roles, Cameron played the younger man in Father Figure 2 and a hunk looking for romance in The Bachelor. He also graced the pages of Men (October 2002), Manshots (March 2001) and Freshman (June 2000) among other magazines. He enjoyed a big fan club of men (a popular fan request was for a molded dildo replica of his cock) and performed in the TV series Wet
Palms between 2005-2006 in which he played the role of Dirk Beckendorf.  We welcome here to VGMH as a part of gay media history.


















"Wet Palms" TV series in 2005-06 in which he played the role of Dirk Beckendorf. - See more at: http://www.sdgln.com/social/2014/06/19/gay-porn-star-cameron-fox-dies#sthash.qOohzNqH.dpuf

Anyone Care to Take a Dip?


 
What better way to cool off on a hot summer day than to kick back and relax at a penthouse pool with a hot hunky number named Lance?   But hey...wait a minute!  Looking at Lance in those bulging professional swimmer's trunks, with that blonde treasure trail and those strong muscular legs, is actually heating things up by the water instead of cooling them down! 
Please stay tuned for tomorrow's post when things really get HOT with Lance.
